There is a double edged sword when it comes to desire and manifesting. For those of you who are familiar with the law of attraction know that whatever we desire we can attract through our feelings, thoughts, and words. Desire is the strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen. Whether it's a house with a white picket fence, love and romance, or inner peace, we all have desires ready to be manifested.
The beautiful part about desire is, we can truly have everything we want if we know how to maneuver reality to our liking. The negative aspects of desire is that there is an underlying belief that we do not already possess what we want -- the feeling of wanting something means we feel we do not have it. That feeling of lack sends conflicting signals to the universe, which in return gives you what you feel rather than what you actually desire...this unfortunately gives you the exact opposite of what you want. Confused yet?
What the book and movie, The Secret, fail to mention is that what we hold in our unconscious mind also accounts for the law of attraction. We attract into our realities that in which we are not aware of. This gets rather confusing because most of us are unaware of thoughts and belief systems we hold in our unconscious mind that have been there most of our lives. In fact, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst (also one of my boyfriends), Carl Jung, has a quote:
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
With this being said, Self-Awareness is an essential part of manifesting the life you crave. You not only have to be aware of what you desire and why you desire it, you have to be aware of unconscious thoughts and limiting beliefs. This is no easy task. This requires time for self-reflection and observation which many people claim they do not have. In fact, we all have time for it, it's a matter of priority. Self-Awareness is also something you cannot achieve alone. Yes, this does seem paradoxical BUT we need others to point out aspects of ourselves we are unaware of. This is where books, blogs, guides, and coaches come in.
Now that you know this, begin observing certain patterns that keep manifesting into your life over and over. Are you attracting the same type of relationships, jobs, financial situations, illnesses? Are they unwanted patterns? If so, there is work you need to do for the sake of your future reality.
Self-Awareness is not just some fluffy, new age, self-help mumbo jumbo. To be Self-Aware means to be in control of your reality. What bigger super power can anyone wish for?
If you are ready to delve deeper into YOUR journey towards Self-Awareness and discover what lies in your unconscious mind, schedule a time to talk with me. You do not have to continue with unwanted cycles. You are worthy of everything you want out of life, remember that.
